A solid-state drive (SSD) is a media that uses flash modules in order to save info. The SSDs remain fairly new and more expensive than the standard hard disk drives (HDD), however they're much faster, so they are quite often used for Operating Systems and applications on both home computer systems and web servers. An SSD is preferred as it does not have spinning disks that restrict its speed and may even cause overheating as it could happen with an HDD. A lot of companies work with SSDs for caching purposes, so all website content that is accessed more often will be kept on this kind of drives, while all the other content will be located on ordinary HDDs. The reason to use this kind of a configuration is to balance the cost and overall performance of their hosting platform and to reduce the load on the HDDs resulting from numerous reading and writing processes.

SSD with Data Caching in Shared Hosting

In case you host your Internet sites in a shared hosting account from us, you'll definitely notice their fantastic performance. This is because our cloud platform uses exclusively SSD drives for all of the files, e-mail addresses and databases and we do not use HDDs for any part of the website hosting service. Together with the leading-edge ZFS file system, this configuration will boost the speed of your sites tremendously. For load-balancing, we also use multiple SSDs for caching purposes only. Any content that generates more traffic or causes plenty of reading/writing processes is duplicated on them instantly, so the load on the primary drives will be lower, thus the overall performance of all sites hosted on our end will improve. The aforementioned subsequently prolongs the life of the main drives and reduces the possibility of a disk failure, which is another warranty for the reliability of any content that you upload to your account.

SSD with Data Caching in Semi-dedicated Servers

In case you need speed and outstanding performance for your Internet sites, our semi-dedicated server accounts will be a really suitable solution as they are created on a cloud platform which uses SSDs for every part of the service - email addresses, databases and files. This way, each and every site that you host with us will load fast. Similar to other providers, we also use SSDs for caching, but since all storage drives are solid-state ones, you can take advantage of the high performance all of the time and regardless of the type of your websites. The caching solid-state drives are used for load-balancing and all the frequently accessed content is copied on them, which both decreases the load and provides the fantastic performance of all websites which load directly from the primary drives. The lifespan of the latter will also be increased since there'll be substantially less reading and writing processes on them.
